Commissioners Approve Contract to Move Airport Road


By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer

The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County approved


this week a contract award to a Hyattsville construc-
tion company to relocate Airport Road, which leads to
the county’s regional airport, and extend taxiway “A”
at the airport as part of a long-range plan to improve
the airport’s operations.
The contract for $2.1 million goes to BA Construc-
tion Inc., a construction contractor which has already
worked locally on the St. Clements Shores wastewater
project and in Prince George’s County for the Wash-
ington Suburban Sanitary Commission.
With the movement of the road comes the relocation
of the Park and Ride space that currently sits just ahead
of the county airport on Airport Road.
Commissioner Todd Morgan said the county is cur-
rently negotiating with the state as to where the airport
Park and Ride will be relocated; if the site cannot be
relocated to another place that is relatively close to its
current site commuters might have to go all the way to

Souvenir Penny Press Brian Ganz Performs


Machine Arrives at Museum Chopin Mazurkas at Free
“Piano Talk”
The Friends of St. Clement’s Island & Piney Point Lighthouse Museums are
pleased to announce the purchase and installation of the St. Mary’s County Museum
Division’s first penny press machine at the St. Clement’s Island Museum in Colton’s
Point, MD. The machine is located in the lobby of the museum and features original
designs, highlighting St. Mary’s County treasured historic sites associated with the
Museum Division. The four pressed penny graphics include the Blackistone Light-
house, the Piney Point Lighthouse, the Drayden African-American Schoolhouse
and “Maryland Begins Here” with an illustration depicting Maryland’s first settler’s
sailing ship, the Dove.
“The whole museum staff contributed to the pressed-penny design selection,”
says Karen Stone, Manager of the St. Mary’s County Museum. “We wanted to rep-
resent the entirety of sites under the Division’s care and the most popular destina-
tions for visitors to our museums.”
The official grand unveiling of the new penny press machine will be on Mon-
day, March 25 at the Maryland Day festivities at St. Clement’s Island Museum.
The public is encouraged to come celebrate the founding of Maryland at the state’s
birthplace with a ceremony from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. featuring guest speakers,
dignitaries from around the state and program. The museum and water taxi will be
operating for visitors prior to and after the ceremony, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
and are free to the general public during Maryland Day.
The Friends Museum Store would like to thank the community and patrons for
their support in donations through our Friends Facebook page fundraiser and in

through contributions that began as a campaign in September of 2018. The Friends
organization sponsored a large portion of the procurement costs as well, donating
$2000 toward the final total.

worked to adjust to our new reality.  We will continue
to provide support for those who need it and do what is
in the best interests of our students and staff.”
The system’s leader said it was the toughest day of
his educational career.
“It was most certainly the worst case scenario you
could encounter for anyone dealing with kids,” said
Superintendent Scott Smith. “It hits all of us very, very
hard.”
When he learned of what had happened that day,
Smith just focused on securing the school and getting
through the day with students being safe.
“You just go into a react mode,” Smith said. “You’re
just compartmentalizing and doing what needs to be
done.”
The evacuation of students from Great Mills to meet
up with their families at Leonardtown High School
was an arduous task but it taught the school system
valuable lessons.
“I think we did as well as we could,” Smith said. “I
think we learned a lot about getting parents and stu-
dents back together and providing information.”
Since the tragedy the school system has concentrat-
ed more on texting staff with updates and coordinating
with them to provide up to date information to parents
once they arrive on scene.
Those same texting services are available to parents
who can follow links to more information, Smith said.
Getting better at communication during a critical
incident was a priority; the confluence of students, par-
ents and first responders at Leonardtown – all 4,000 of
them – overwhelmed the cell phone tower there, Smith
said.
Even the school system’s web site had to be shut-
down as well as the Twitter page for Heibel.
Too many media agents were trying to e-mail which
ever staff member they could throughout the school
system to get any information.
“We weren’t ready for the attention,” said Smith.
On Wednesday the school was off limits to anyone
but students and staff; grief counselors were on hand
as were emotional support dogs that helped everyone
inside through the most difficult of times.
Smith said since the events of March 20 of last year,
the community has continued to surround and support

— really old dogs…” (Headline in The
Washington Post, March 2018)
We older dogs are an UNAPPRECIATED
OPPORTUNITY! We get along great with OLDER
FOLKS and CHILDREN. We need LESS EXERCISE. And, surprise, you can teach
us new tricks! Hi, my name is Atlas and I’m a SWEET, ADORABLE, older man who
loves to play, eat yummy treats, and then crawl up to snuggle with a canine buddy.
But most of all, I LOVE MY PEOPLE! Once I get to know you, I will be your LOYAL
AND FAITHFUL COMPANION, following you around the house like your little
shadow. I also love to chase squirrels, so a home with cats and small critters may
not a be a good fit for me. Come meet me at TCAS and BE MY MIRACLE! When
you adopt from TCAS you are literally saving a life.
PLEASE CHOOSE ME!
And remember, if there is room in the heart, there is room in the house!
Come meet me and the wonderful gang at Tri-County Animal
Shelter (6707 Animal Shelter Road, Hughesville) or call 301-932-
1713 for more information. To see more of my amazing friends
available for adoption, “like” us on Facebook @ Tri-County
